The Disney Channel has ordered a new musical series called “Zombies and Cheerleaders,” which will begin production later this year and will arrive on the network in 2012. Here is a description of the show:
“The story follows Zed Necrodopolis, a typical high school student with one small caveat; he happens to be a zombie. Despite a high-tech wristwatch designed to curb any appetite he may have for his classmates, he and his zombie friends remain unpopular with the school’s most influential group, the pom-pom wielding cheerleaders. Never one to back down from a challenge, Zed sets out to improve zombie student body relations and win the attention of Addison, the cheerleading squad’s newest member.”
The show is executive produced by Eric Weinberg (“Scrubs,” “Death Valley”) an written by Joseph Raso and David Light who also serve as co-executive producers. Todd Strauss Schulson (“A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas”) will direct the pilot episode.
